Pupils compete in the Oxford University Computing Challenge

Having achieved scores in the top 10% of the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge, pupils from Years 7 - 11 were invited to put their programming and computational thinking skills to the test this week in the Oxford University Computing Challenge

The Oxford University Computing Challenge is an invitation challenge for talented UK students who scored in the top 10% nationally in the first round ‘Bebras’ competition. 21 pupils from Years 7 to 13 at Sheffield Girls’ have taken part in the challenge this term.  It tests the students’ programming skills as well as their ability to apply computational thinking techniques such as Logical and Algorithmic Thinking, Decomposition, Pattern Identification and Abstraction.

We’re incredibly proud of our pupils’ achievements, and we really value their clear skills and creative problem solving in computer science. Technological skills are increasingly valued in the workforce, and computational thinking gives our girls the best advantage in their futures.
